  1. Default Las Vegas - Grand Canyon West - Los Angeles

    I am heading to Las Vegas next week and am collecting a car Saturday 28th to drive to Grand Canyon West - staying a Diamond Bar Ranch. Any help or suggestions on this as a way to go would be appreicated - i.e. how to get there, will a mustang do on the roads, can we do the skywalk?

    We are then planning to drive to Los Angeles - any help at all on how best to do this and whether we can do it in one day? or if we should stop on the way.

    First time doing the drive - would prefer not to have to do freeways?

    Default Some Suggestions

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I haven't been to GC West, so I can't say much from personal experience. I have heard reports that the road is quite rough, so you can keep that in mind. You shouldn't have any problems with the skywalk, assuming you have the cash. Its $75 per person, when you factor in both the Reservation Entrance Fee and the Skywalk Admission Charge.

    Getting back to LA in one day wouldn't be a problem if you stick to I-40 going back. However, if you are planning on staying off the interstate, you might want to spend a night along the way, perhaps at one of the classic Route-66 era mom and pop motels in Barstow.
